Update font awesome to 5

Post by koraldon » Sun May 06, 2018 6:29 pm

Currently phpbb uses font awesome 4.7 which is great, but out of date
The new Version 5 offers many more icons (>1000) as well as SVG graphics and more options.

That would be a small (nice) improvement.

I believe, and I may be wrong, that Font Awesome will be being retired for other (better) alternatives in the "new style"

Incidentally there is nothing to stop you loading version 5 in your extension if you "need" some of the new options.

we are not dropping support for anything, but rather expanign it to allow for w/e type of icon you want be it SVG, PNG, Font. furthermore not limiting you to use one library over the other ie google material icons useage as well as custom ones.

I saw the PR but is it for Font awesome 5? it seems it is to remove font awesome support from core which is completely different...
